SCHOOL DISTRICT OF PHILADELPHIA'S CHARTER SCHOOL OFFICE RELEASES NEW CHARTER SCHOOL PROFILES
PHILADELPHIA – The School District of Philadelphia’s Charter Schools Office (CSO) has released the Philadelphia Charter Schools Profiles, which includes a detailed school profile for each charter school in Philadelphia. The profiles were developed to provide students, families and the public with a one-page description for each charter school that includes key information like application deadlines, grades served, public transit options, academic highlights and summer programs. The current profiles are the second edition and reflect the most current information available to assist families with school choice decisions for the 2017-18 school year.
The Charter Schools Office worked with each charter school in Philadelphia to collect information for the guide. The profiles for each school will be updated annually. Later this academic year, the Charter Schools Office will release its annual charter evaluations which will include detailed information on charter school academic performance, organizational compliance, and financial health and sustainability for each brick and mortar charter school.
The profiles can be accessed online through the Charter Schools Office webpage on the District website (www.philasd.org/charter_schools).
